I'm working on Lucid, in HP Pavilion 9730us laptop.
My wireless broadcom card was working just fine until now as i installed it with the Hardware Devices manager, Today i put a new ALFA AWUS036H usb card to work with aircrack. both cards were working together for a while, but as i started playing around with aircrack the broadcom card of the HP has stopped working.
I made a mistake and followed the aircrack tutorial for R8187 / ieee80211 stacks driver, while i'm using RTL 8187 / mac80211 stack drivers, and blacklisted the RTL8187 , rebooted and then both card didn't work. I un-blacklisted it, and the ALFA is working but the broadcom not!
iwconfig shows me only one wireless card on wlan0 the blue light showing activity in the HP card doesn't go on.
Tried to uninstall and reinstall broadcom drivers, still no change.
I'm a new user of Ubuntu, so i'm not that familiar with this OS. My wireless network is detected but when I'm entering my 128 bits WEP key, it doesn't connect at all. I have no clue where to start troubleshooting.
Here's some of my specs if that's of any help: Computer is a Sony Vaio laptop model VGN-SZ370P My wireless card is from Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB UHCI Controller
The ethernet cable connection used to work before, but I fooled around with some commands and now seems to be disabled...
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
My networkmanager understands that the card is installed. But it can not find any network. Also iwlist scan gives me no result. I did not have this problem on earlier fedora releases. Recently I upgraded to F12 from F11. I should mention that I have another USB DLink wireless card and when I plug it, everything works fine with that card. I also tested wl_apsta driver using fw-cutter. I did not work neither.
I installed the 64-bit version of Fedora 12 on my MacBookPro5,1, and I am unable to establish a connection to my wireless network, which I can connect to fine with I boot the computer into Mac OS X. Here is my operating system information:
$ uname -a Linux tosh 22.214.171.124-174.2.3.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jan 18 19:52:07 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Here is information about the PCI devices available on the system:
I installed Ubuntu on a machine after erasing everything else and the wireless has never worked. It says that the wireless has already shut down even though it recognizes the wireless network and my other non-linux machines see the network and work fine.
I'm very new to Debian (and Linux in general), and am currently taking a Linux course at college... I'm trying to get Debian running on my MacBook Pro (late 2009 model) and it's been complicated but I've got the operating system installed on it... I'm just having a few problems, the biggest right now of which is my wireless card, which doesn't work. So, I found instructions on the Debian Wiki for getting the driver for it, but it's not compiled already and I have little knowledge of manually installing stuff through Linux...
I'm trying to activate a wireless network on an ubuntu server 10.04. The machine has a TPLink PCI wireless card. Card is well recognized, and scanning for wireless connection it finds correctly the essid of the access point in the room. But when I try:
Code: $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "apoint" key s:my_key_8 this error is returned: Code: Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.I looked for similar situations over many forums, and I found that it could be the card doesn't support the encryption type (My AP uses WPA with TKIP). However if I use an ubuntu desktop live CD on the same machine, I can connect witouth any problem with NetworkManager 0.8.
I have an Aspire 7741z running Ubuntu 10.04 I just loaded the 32 bit version today, then did the Update manager (398 updates) Before the update everything worked fine. After the update, no wireless. Password & security is correct, all wireless setup is correct. Aside from my network, I do have access to a local hotel (next door) and I can always get into their unsecured guest network, that doesn't work either.
I believe it is the driver since I have loaded Ubintu 10.10 32 bit with the same reaction. It will connect when I put in the live disk, but not from the hard install. output from lspci
Recently I have installed Fedora 14 on my other laptop. It's a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.
Hello, i recently update the kernel in fedora through the GUI update manager and after restarting the new kernel wouldn't boot and i had to reboot into the old one. it freezes right after Plymouth finishes and the login screen should show up it just completely freezes, i do have proprietary nvidia drivers could it be that?
I've just installed Ubuntu on 2 computers, and I'm new to it. However I'm not new to computers. The problem I'm currently running into on one of the computers is that the wireless will not detect any connections, despite there being many. The computer is a HP Compaq v6203AU using the wireless card Broadcom BCM4312 [14e4:4312]. I've went through dozens of walkthroughs, encountering errors in every single one of them, I've spent 8 hours on this one problem and extremely frustrated. It seem to be a problem with the driver that comes as default, and I'm lost at what to do.
The terminal command "lspci -nn | grep 14e4" returns the following: 03:00.0 Network Controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g [14e4:4312]
ifconfig returns the following: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:8b:b2:ab:d3 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:20 Base address:0x8000
After updating to kernel-126.96.36.199-147.fc13.x86_64 (and updating all kmods) VirtualBox guests no longer boot.
I had a Windows guest (from now on refereed as Crapdows) that worked normally. After the update, I could get to the "Start Windows Normally" screen, but then Crapdows refused to boot. At first, I thought it was a crappy M$ bug, but after creating another VM (Doublecrap), and starting from scratch, I was able to get to the "Windows is loading files" screen, and then the guest hangs again. This problem is generalized to all OS'es I've tried. In Ubuntu, I can get to the language selection screen before the installation freezes. The same applies for Fedora and SUSE guests.
I have a problem here with my updated kernel. I'm currently using Fedora 14 kernel 188.8.131.52-64, and my wireless card Broadcom BCM4312, which had an issue before with Linux distros, is working fine already, thanks to the kmod-wl software driver. My problem now is this, after updating to kernel 184.108.40.206-72, fedora does not boot, and I noticed that the wireless card is the only thing not activating, compared to the working kernel. And when i looked at the log of the bootup (pressed right arrow key), I saw this:
I've currently got the beta of fedora 12 installed, hope to upgrade that once the final release comes out. I'm having so many problems getting wireless to work. I've got a edimax ew-7711utn wireless adaptor. It doesn't work. Really what I want is to take it back and get a wireless card that will work.
I have updated FC 11 on my hp 6730b laptop as $ su -c 'yum -y update'after updating I logged to kernel '220.127.116.11-105.2.23.fc11.i686.PAE', but my wireless is notworking any idea how to solve it. I have to solve it offline since I have only wireless internet at my work.
I updated my system from FC13 18.104.22.168-66 to 22.214.171.124-68 for both the kernel and the kmod-wl RPM's. After doing so, iwconfig wlan0 key 1234567890 no longer works. I get an error indicating 'invalid argument'. If I reboot using the previous kernel/wl.ko module, it works The size of the wl.ko module increased in size by almost 30%. Did I somehow get the wrong RPM?
I use FC9. Yesterday after system update I turned of the computer, but today when it booted the wireless didn't work, ndiswrapper device wlan0:1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.I have removed and again installed the wireless driver and looks like it is ok,
[root@localhost utils]# ./ndiswrapper -r bcmwl6 [root@localhost utils]# ./ndiswrapper -i /fatfs/Archiv/Softwere/Drivers/Dr_software/bcmwl6.inf installing bcmwl6 ...
